Margherita Pizza – Low carb/Keto Recipe for Delicious Dinner!

It is pretty simple – you like Margherita Pizza or you just not! Personally, I am more fan of some meaty versions. But when I have tried this recipe, I totally changed my mind. Now, my family has this kind of pizza on a weekly menu. We have it for dinner and the good thing is that it is low in carbs.

The crust is nice and crispy and with the topping, it is the real deal. Preparation takes just about 20 minutes, so shortly you’ll have a great dinner.

  • 5 oz. (150 g) Mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 2 oz. (60 g) of full-fat soft cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/3 oz. (100 g) ground almonds (also you can combine with ground sunflower seeds and sesame)
